Is That All?

Alright people, where’s the giant snowstorm that was supposed to blanket the city in up to 40 cm of the white stuff? I ventured out at lunch today and frankly, this is nothing my friends. I didn’t even get the tops of my snazzy boots dusted. Looks like the weather forecasters were all bark and no bite. Come on, I need a snow day! I’m talking snowbanks up the wazoo. Road closures, school closures, you know the drill. Everyone needs a day off in February. Maybe if we all do a snow dance, we’ll get the winter wollop that we all deserve! hehe

    At least traffic was hellish this afternoon ;-)

    I have to admit that I’m pretty dissapointed as we got most of the disadvantages of a snowstorm but none of its advantages.

    Hang on, it’s coming. It wasn’t quite what we thought, but the worst is yet to come. There is a large cell heading straight towards Montreal. It should arrive around 18:00 and it’ll drop a good 10-15cm in about 3hrs.

    I disagree, Justin. It seems the bulk of it will skirt just to the east. So all the ski resorts to the east and south will be well replenished. I think we’ll be lucky to get 5cm more before it’s over tomorrow.

    It’s all kinda moot since the forecast shows above freezing temps in about a week. But then again the forecast was showing 20-30cms yesterday.

    We shall see Frank.. It’s coming straight at us and it’s slow as all get out. I think we’ll have a good 20cm by tomorrow morning. Look at the radar link I posted and run the animation. You’ll see what I mean.

    The intellicast radar doesn’t show it.

    Well in the end, I think Frank avait raison.. While it did really pick up around 20:00, to the point where it was falling at 8cm an hour, the brunt of it hit the east. Apparantely, Sherbrooke is totally closed with 60cm falling..

    Mont Sutton claims to have 80cm!

    Montreal got 15cm and as soon as you start south east, it jumps.. Here’s a map:

    I was surprised to see how much more we got on the South Shore just over the bridge. Seems like we got 5-10cm more than on the Plateau. Unfortunately there is still enough to make parking a pain until they cart it away.

    Frank: I assume you’re saying it’s to warm up based on the Weather Network 14-day forecast? That thing is as comically inaccurate as the Bush Administration.
